Lead & Pregnancy

Pregnant women with high blood lead levels can transfer blood high in lead to the baby through the placenta, creating an increased risk of miscarriage, premature birth or small baby.


Kids Corner

Kids Corner is a collection of fun activities for kids that will help teach and reinforce the importance of lead safety.


Blood Lead Screening Clinic

Blood lead testing is available at the Southern Nevada Health District's main facility at 280 S. Decatur Blvd (map & directions). Wednesdays from 1:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. for children between the ages of 1 and 5. Most insurance companies cover the cost of lead screenings for children.


Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention

We can help prevent childhood lead poisoning by educating parents and health care providers about the dangers of lead and how to avoid it. Lead is still a big problem in this country. Lead poisoning can affect any child of any race, culture, income or region.
